it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing h
an fbi investigation that ended in general petraeus' abrupt resignation. it all started with complaints to the fbi about harassing e-mails sent from this woman, paula broadwell, to the another unnamed woman. petraeus was not the focus of investigators, but that led them to other e-mails between petraeus and broadwell which officials tell nbc news were indicative of an extramarital affair. the general admitted to an extramarital affair in his resignation letter. meanwhile we're now hearing from petraeus' former spokesperson. he talked to kristen welker. she's in washington with more. >> i interviewed steven boylan by phone saturday. he called petraeus a mentor and friend. boylan says he's stunned by the news about his former boss. in the meantime, new details are emerging about how this all came to light. according to multiple sources, the down fall of general david petraeus all started with a seemingly unrelated complaint to the fbi. officials say it was triggered by e-mails from paula broadwell to another woman not related to petraeus who felt she was being harassed and complained to t
behind there is an fbi investigation going on so we can't talk about it. >> what i don't like -- maybe i am wrong, it seems that a lot of the discussion that does come up here is done behind closed doors. i am always suspicious that things are overclassified and sort of a way to protect the american people from hearing some of the information t. really isn't classified. am i wrong? >> i watch you religiously. you make that point every time. >> you are right except that there are some sources and methods that have to be -- >> some -- >> protected. classified. >> i understand, some. >> but not nearly to the extent that it has been done here. much of this could be put in the open. but they start with the classified hearings and hopefully, tell come to open hearings and open testimony by the administration officials. they have to stop hiding behind the notion of an fbi investigation. this was an act of war. this wasn't just a crime committed. at some point, it is fin for the fbi to have a matter under investigation. but the american people have a right to know what happened here, when the se

house because he was under investigation in the fbi and his fate was in the white house hand? that question was not asked. >> i think one thing we need to remember here, this is know about an affair or a salacious story. this is four men who are dead, four more thans are dead and the united states government, under president obama did not address the issue, did not send help when this was asked. i think it is very concerning that after an election, all of this information comes out and we do need the questions answer. good luck getting it from an administration that is the least transparent administration in modern american history. >> sean: there are a coup of things with general petraeus who will testify tomorrow behind closed doors. general petraeus wants to clarify some things. and in the washington post, i believe, petraeus was at odds with his bosses, prior to this because he felt that the intelligence community was being portrayed in an unfavorable light and he wanted to correct that record. apparently, there was conflict there. now, he also knows that the administrati
of the homeland security committee has questions. >> it just doesn't add up that the f.b.i. would be carrying on this type of investigation without bringing it to the president or the highest levels of the white house. >> it doesn't seem to be partisan. senator dianne feinstein in charge of the senate intelligence committee is curious why she found out something like this from media irinquiries and because it could affect national security, pertinent lawmakers should have known in advance. a woman named jane kelly was being harassed by email and brought them into the f.b.i. office. they looked into the emails and found a relationship between broadwell and petraeus. no breach of national security, even though petraeus was advised to resign. we'll be back with more after the break. crazy monday. we'll see you on the other side. ♪ stay tuned for the answer.

travel, foreign contacts, full fbi investigation every time you go out of the country, you list every address you have ever lived that. very difficult if you don't keep those records. another standard form his financial disclosure. you may have to divest assets, restrictions, sometimes these are onerous. you often have the higher lawyers and accountants to make sure they are filled out right because you have signed a thing at the bottom that says us where this is true and a mistake could have serious consequences. each jurisdiction has its own set of questions. the most important is the white house personnel data statement. they will focus on political liabilities and they want to protect the president, so they're going ask you very invasive questions about an abundance of caution. they will look at every article, every facebook coast. what you post on facebook never goes away. if you are up for office some time, it might come back to bite you. they will ask you embarrassing questions, financial dealings, the arrest record. plagiarism, joe biden and ted kennedy both got caught up. stu
said that the talking points have been changed by the fbi because of an on-going criminal investigation. and they were very troubled by this because of course we had already been told it was the dni that changed them. then they got a call at 4:00 p.m. from the c.i.a., actually, no it wasn't. it was us. we changed them. so then they're going what the bleep is going on? they can't get their act straight. and yet the focus of their rage when they came out from the meeting was susan rice, not michael morrell. >> bill: right. so susan rice, first of all not responsible for security at consulates or embassies around the country. number two, she's not the one who wrote those intelligence reports or provided the material for the intelligence report that she -- the findings of which she simply read or reported on. if the anger should be directed toward anybody it should be against the c.i.a. or the fbi or whoever did not have all of the facts right. but jon huntsman, the one republican making any sense on this issue
of the cia told republican senators that it was actually the fbi that changed those controversial unclassified talking points that susan rice used, then called back six hours later and said, never mind, i was wrong, it was us, the cia who did it. i just interviewed lindsey graham who was in that meeting who is very baffled and very perplexed that somebody as high-ranking as the cia director, acting cia director would tell them something about an issue that is so controversial and such a political -- so politically controversial that is absolutely wrong. >> a lot of unanswered questions, a lotf concerns there and obviously very controversial. whether or not this moves forward, the potential nomination for susan rice. dana, excellent reporting, as always. of course, we're going to check back in with you as you continue to meet with members of congress. i want to talk about something that senator collins talked about, her concerns about the readiness of susan rice, given that she was assistant secretary for african affairs in the bombing of east africa of 1998. i spoke with our natio

.i.a. or the fbi, one or the other deleted any reference to possible terrorist activity at the time because they didn't want to trigger or let people know that's what they were looking into but again she's not the one that wrote the talking points or edited the talking points. she also said at the time look, these may not prove to be true down the road but this is what we've got so far. >> that's right. my impression of this is yours which is that she read from prepared talking points and delivered messages that had been vetted and developed by the intelligence community in what was a chaotic and rapidly developing situation. it became clear fairly quickly that the attack on the benghazi consulate was a premeditated effort by terrorists. the president used the word terrorist actions the next day. and this isn't something -- this isn't iran-contra. this wasn't concealed for six months or a year. there wasn't complete disavow of any knowledge. this was the intelligence community saying we shouldn't be out there publicly in the fi
